Diabetes guide for London
Although specific for London this document can help inform the development of safe improvement and implementation models of care for other regions and long-term conditions.
The Healthcare for London programme was established by the capital’s 31 primary care trusts (PCTs) to transform healthcare services. Diabetes was selected as the focus of the first long-term conditions project because of the major impact this illness has on individuals and on our local communities.
This guide aims to advise clinicians and commissioners how to implement the new model of care, either developing their own care pathways or adapting existing pathways for their local areas. The next key step will be local engagement between clinicians and commissioners, and with service users to drive forward diabetes care at the local level.
